This means, of course, that Peterson may well find himself in the lineup tonight against Brad Peacock.
In other A's news:
His first Major League home run ball sitting nearby in his locker, hit into the left-field bleachers at the Coliseum just hours earlier in an 11-2 A's win over the Astros, Freiman deemed the day "bittersweet."
For it was earlier in the afternoon when he learned from relatives stationed in Wellesley, Mass., just west of Boston, of the horrific bombing scene at the finish line of the city's annual marathon that killed at least three and injured more than a hundred others.
"For me, this is a dream come true," said Freidman, his thoughts suddenly shifting. "A lot of my family is back there, and it was a nightmare. So you know what? It's an amazing feeling today, but we're not going to forget about what happened there."
